Japanese casualwear label BAL takes a playful approach to seasonal collections, frequently touching on a multitude of styles and trends simultaneously. Spring/Summer 2018 keeps in line with past releases, offering up a wide variety of graphic goods and slouchy silhouettes.

The collection draws influence from current hot topics in style, ranging from trek-ready outerwear to loose cuts. Prints appear all over long-sleeved tees and loose-fitting shirts, with a handful of patterns accenting the disparate range. Beachy imagery like palm fronds are juxtaposed with all-over leopard print, as the collection shifts from oversized tropical wool suiting to weather resistant layering pieces, like anoraks and quilted liner jackets. Artist Itsumi Max contributed detailing to the rear of an M-51 field jacket and a rayon shirt, while Masashi Ozawa’s Grace Jones collage appears on a spread-collar shirt.

Take a closer look at the range in the video lookbook below and shop on BAL’s website when it drops in the coming months.
